This week, some researchers discover a diabetes model in blind cave fish, a molecule from daffodils binds the ribosome to fight cancer, and a few proteins can make a big difference in helping hearts recover from damage.
This week, we hunt bacteria with the power of sound, splats of molten tin fall off silicon, and a link between Crohn's disease and Parkinson's disease.
This week, we delve deep into the history Antarctic ice, malaria parasites get the go-ahead to reproduce, and prehistoric women beat us at arm wrestling
This week, we get caught up in plasma vortexes that form in the wake of atomic collisions, we break open molecular ladders to transform materials, and we identify immune system cells that mean well, but usually end up doing more harm than good. We also discuss the ending of Battlestar Galactica so once you hear word of cylons, skip ahead a bit to avoid getting spoiled. Apologies!
